See more on hypersensitivity and previous news about the EESC’s draft Opinion on hypersensitivity.
In the end, the European Economic and Social Committee adopted an alternative Opinion on Hypersensivity rather than the draft Opinion that was being developed in November and December.
The following quote gives a flavour:
3.4 EMS sufferers continue to argue that action on their problem, both by Member States and the EU, falls far short of what they believe is necessary. Most public health authorities, however, do not agree … The great majority of independent trials to date have found that self-described sufferers from EHS cannot distinguish between exposure to real and false (meaning zero) electromagnetic fields. “Double-blind” experiments suggest that people who report electromagnetic hypersensitivity are unable to detect the presence of electromagnetic fields and are as likely to report ill health following a zero exposure, as they are following exposure to genuine electromagnetic fields (British Medical Journal 332 (7546): 886–889).
